This is a good place for fish/fried food with families, larger groups. It is heavy food, not super healthy. Not romantic, not special.

Great seafood. Lots of variety. Large bar area and can be very loud on weekends. Valet parking and attendants are very attentive (sorry). We stop here each year we are up.

Similar to Chapin's Beach Bar but open more months, this spot on Taunton Ave (Dennis Northside) is a treasure in menu and beer choices (talented Black & Tan pouring). It's pricier than necessary, but food prep, quickness, and superior attentiveness mostly make up for that....More
